    About the webinar

    The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities in the global healthcare supply chain. Supply chain shocks stem from both interruptions in manufacturing and transport, and surges in demand for drugs and materials greatly exceeding supply capacity. The urgent adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic presents opportunities for establishing a more robust and resilient supply chain, with lessons drawn from the sustainable healthcare movement to address both mitigation and adaptation to climate change. This first webinar in our series offers insights from healthcare leaders, for clinicians, healthcare administrators, business leaders and regulators, intent on building a sustainable healthcare system.
